The focus will be on Aussie entertainment, barbecues and poolside fun when Australia Day activities are held throughout Cabonne Shire later this month.
A full day of celebrations is planned for Friday 26 January 2018, starting at 8am with breakfasts at several villages and wrapping up with barbecue dinners and local entertainment by the swimming pool in the evening.
Cabonne’s Australia Day ambassador, writer and music journalist Bruce Elder will participate in ceremonies at Nashdale, Cudal, Manildra and Yeoval where Citizens of the Year, Young Citizens of the Year and Community Groups of the Year will be announced.
Australia Day will also be celebrated at Canowindra, Cargo, Cumnock, Eugowra, Molong and Mullion Creek.
Bruce Elder has written more than 60 books, worked as a print and radio journalist in both London and Sydney and was the Australian editor of Trivial Pursuit for 25 years.
He is currently working on his own Aussie Towns website, which will contain information on 1350 towns around Australia.
He will begin a hectic Australia Day at Nashdale at 10am before travelling to celebrations at Cudal at 12.30pm, followed at 3.30pm by a host of family activities at Manildra swimming pool and concluding with an awards ceremony and light tea at Yeoval Central School at 5.30pm.
